Centre de documentation

Centre de documentation

© musées Gadagne


The Gadagne museums have a documentation centre, the main purpose of which is to store documents and make them available to the public under certain conditions.

The documentation centre thus retains a fund of different types of documents relating to the history of Lyon and the international puppets: manuscript notes, archives, drawings, etchings, plans, posters, photographs, works and periodicals.

Some of the most important documentation in the archives collection includes information by Godard and Lacassagne on the history of Lyon on the one hand, and the data recorded by Léopold Dor and the manuscripts of Guignol plays for the international puppet museum on the other hand.
